in the obama era than it is the kind of association with the crazy fringe. >> and i got nancy pelosi on the road on that subject yesterday in a clip we have not played, but we're going to play in a second. her reaction to that -- her diagnosis of that on the republican side and how she says it has been different in the past is fascinating and that's coming up. and it's apparently mraz. >> can i just say, every day, i get into my show and there's nine names that i forget to check the pronunciation. >> i'm sorry. i'll never do it again. chris hayes, i'm going to call it yupa. i hope you don't mind. we'll be right back. yeah. then how'd i get this... [ voice of dennis ] ...safe driving bonus check? every six months without an accident, allstate sends a check. ok. [ voice of dennis ] silence. are you in good hands? [ male announcer ] why not talk to someone who's sleeping on the most highly recommended bed in america? ask me about my tempur-pedic. ask me how fast i fall asleep. ask me about staying asleep.

democratic leader nancy pelosi says she won't budge when it comes to tax hikes for the wealthy, putting her directly at odds with house speaker john boehner. >> could you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy? we've seen talk about a possible compromise that could leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all no, way? >> no. the preponderance made it very clear in his campaign that there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. you cannot go forward -- you have to cut some investments. if you cut too many you are hampering growth, you're hampering education, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestme
's a mandate here? >> i don't. because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welc
leader nancy pelosi and senate majority leader harry reid and minority leader senator mitch mcconnell. jeff, it seems like the media are poised to blame republicans if the deal falls apart. >> if you look at the polling, over half the country believes it's the g.o.p.'s fault if this deal falls apart. why that? the democrats and the president himself have done an effective job of essentially trashing republicans saying that this whole, the reason that there's a, you know, there isn't a deal in the first place, because it's their fault and that's not true. it's both parties that did this and the president particularly not showing leadership and kicking the can down the road and creating a super committee. the media is not covering this correctly at all. reporting that the president want a deficit package. 1 trillion from tending the war and that's going to happen and another trillion from spending cuts in the past so they are he completely ignoring that and again, it's not spending cuts that the president is going to agree to in the end. it's reducing the growth rate in spending and com
senators harry reid and nancy pelosi have opposed that idea in the past. he says the president can get them to budge. >> yeah, the president essentially wants what he calls balance. either you increase revenue or you, you know, decrease the spending or you try to find some type of balance. when he gets into these democratic side, they don't want programs to be cut on the backs of, let's say, the recipients, middle class recipients. here's nancy pelosi and how she explains that. >> whatever adjustments would be made in social security should be there to strengthen social security, not to subsidize a tax cut for the wealthiest people in america and say that's how we balance the budget. the same thing with medicaid and medicare. again, we have said we support a grand bargain. >> grand bargain. so right now, i think you'd have to say the democrats feel that after the election, they have some type of mandate. the republicans obviously don't agree, but the democrats want to strike while the iron is hot. the president certainly wants to come to a deal as quickly as possible. time really is running
@thekudlowreport. we'll read them later in the show. >>> guess what? nancy pelosi is staying. wow! in congress. as the minority leader of the house democrats. holy cow. surrounded by women democrats at the house, nancy pelosi told reporters today they were looking into the future. more women, more minorities in the incoming house. more than ever before with her decision. the democratic leadership is not going to change in the new house of representatives in january. and all i'll say is my condolences to her longtime deputy, steny hoyer. >>> anyway, stocks dropped sharply on president obama's press conference today. the dow closed down almost 700 points since the election itself. keith boykin notwithstanding. we'll look at the growing number of investor pessimists. this is not good. >>> later, markets also have their eye on a big escalation in mideast hostility. hamas declaring war on israel. this while we have no cia director. >>> and don't forget, free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. i don't know why we have to raise $800 billion in revenues. makes no sense to me. cut spendi
as opposed to the senate, do you hear anything nancy pelosi is going to have a news conference, a press conference, later today? what do you think she's going to do? any word? >> i have no idea. no idea. >> thank you for your honesty. go get me a cup of coffee. >> did you watch this program yesterday? debbie wassermann schultz said she's staying. most of the people i talk to say she's staying. i think her body language yesterday when she was sparring with the press a little bit suggest she's staying. and if we're wrong, i won't be here tomorrow. >> let's go back to congressman ryan and his comments. the interesting thing that president obama did yesterday, he's been, you know, criticized -- was criticized a lot from a lot of different angles in the first four years of his time in office. but one of the things that the left and some in the center criticized him for was constantly negotiating against himself, that he was not a tactical negotiator. yesterday was as much as anything an announcement. he's not going to get the tax increases that he wants. that number. but he's not coming in -
's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support raising tax rates. >> period. >> yeah, i've been saying that my entire career. >> the fiscal cliff. i mean, there are people -- you read them, you hear them, say, you know, let us go off the fiscal cliff. that might be one way to really resolve the situation. what happens if we go off the fiscal cliff? what is the fiscal cliff? >> well -- >> i can't even balance a checking account. what is it? >> it's actually more like 2 1/2 cliffs because
, foreign aid, nancy pelosi's aircraft, all compensation for congress. that's nothing. that's about 4% of where we are. you get spending cuts by going into the entitlements programs. these things are on health care -- doesn't matter what you call it. it's an automatic pilot. all you have to do is look at the demographics and the fact that all these things are happening. health, obesity drugs. you're taking care of them all. >> medicare and medicaid, how realistic are we going to get some cuts here? these are the biggies. >> better get realistic. we can't do it. >> we spend twice as much as any other developed country in the world on health care. twice as much. that might be all right if, you know, our outcomes were twice as good as anybody else's. but they're not. we rank somewhere between 25th and 50th in such important measures as infant mortality, life expectancy, preventable death. anybody who doesn't think those 32 million people who don't have health care insurance don't get health care, they get health care today. they just get it at the emergency room at five to eight times th
't happen. >> i think i saw john boehner and nancy pelosi sharing a rootbeer float out of the same straw at johnny half shell. it's the dawn of a new era. i'm positive about it. >> a lot of important things happened this week. i wasn't totally shocked by any of them, even though the pets russ scandal was a bit surprising. the thing that shocked me the most was, i went to see "lincoln" and it sucked, it was terrible. it wasn't really about the soul of the country as i was led to believe it was going to be, and daniel day-lewis is incredible, he will be in the best actor oscar race but the film -- i want those 2 1/2 hours back. >> toure, we did like another movie though. >> "argo." >> i saw it. >> three thumbs up from "the cycle crew cycle" crew, krystal hasn't seen it yet. >> we were concerned that after the election we would have nothing to talk about, and that's not been a problem. i mean, even on oyour crazy lon list, romney thrusting himself back into the spotlight, even boehner and obama shared a light-hearted tomorrow. >> tomorrow is speaker boehner's birthday. for those who want to
at this and moving on it. but with now 45 days to go, you know, i think the minority leader nancy pelosi's goal of christmas is a good one. it's probably also realistic that it won't happen before then. >> what about to both of you, if, if we get the money, say we get this trillion dollars one way or another, is there a guarantee, nancy, to you first, that, that this goes to reducing the deficit? i mean, do we have that guarantee? is there any way it could be spent? >> well, i feel like the president has talked about spending some of that before on infrastructure projects, and the idea of creating jobs. but i do think that the bulk of it will go towards reducing the deficit. that's something that both parties agree really has to be tackled. and the problem is that if they don't tackle it now they'll have to tackle it down the road. so i think that this will be -- this is one of the few shared goals that they do have, taking that money to reduce it. >> you agree, ed? >> yeah, absolutely. i think you mention infrastructure. i mean, that is one possible spending program or stimulus-like proposal t
striking this deal? what about nancy pelosi, harry reid, mitch mcconnell? in 2011 it was basically boehner and obama, this time there might be a few more lawmakers who want in on this deal. jenna: the president's going to be sitting down with leaders later on this week. let's talk about style versus substance, something we talked about a lot with the election. i was reading comments from the ceo of at&t today, also the senior economist from bank of america who say, listen, if they'd reach an agreement, great. but if between now and then and the disagreements look really big and bad, that's going to damage this economy because it just shatters any consumer confidence going into the holiday season. >> yes. jenna: so, ultimately, they could find a solution, but damage will already be done. what dueck about that, bob? what do you think about the style to all this as well? >> that's why -- and i agree with that, they're going to need a deal by mid december because it's going to shatter consumer confidence, and the stock market's going to play a big role here. we saw that in the bailout in 2008
. for the wealthy. do you subscribe to that? >> no. if the president had a mandate, nancy pelosi would be the next speaker of the happen. -- of the house. that will not happen. >> what about your outlook? how confident are you right now as these negotiations began at the end of the day there will be a deal that you and your colleagues can support? >> very confident. there is an opportunity the president has to lead the country in a way that he wanted to in 2008. there is a benefit to limited government. the president did not have it in two dozen 9. now they're in it -- in 2009. now there is a restraint influence, and there is an opportunity for both of these men, the president, who i knew from my days in the state senate, the speaker of the house, and their dispositions to come up with the remedy. >> would it be better if there were just a two of them? >> they have temperaments that can get to yes, and that is a good thing. >> thank you for joining us. one of the players in these negotiations. thank you for your time for the republican perspective. >> live coverage as ted koppel talks about live i
